  1. Well spoken.
    I think it can be easy to constant seek a feeling or a new mountain top experience but the reality of walking in relationship with God, most of the time, comes through trust and obedience to His word which has already been laid before us, each and every day. Our faith is made of walking with and relating with an unseen God, walking even when there is no tangible moments with God. I grew up in a super Pentecostal Church with a leaning to an over abundance of focus on signs and gifts etc (in my opinion) that actually pushed me away a lot. I didn’t see those supposed Sunday feelings and signs translating into these peoples every other day lives. I was reading in John today and a scripture that really stuck out to me was John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciple, if you have love for one another. And this scripture is coming as Jesus washing his disciples feet. Jesus knew Judas would betray him and still shows love to him anyways. All that, haha, to say that is something I see as part of our purpose on earth. To love one anywhere, to show God’s love. This is part of living in honor of the Lord.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and I enjoyed your podcast.

    • Hi livingvibrantlyfree, thanks for your comment. I agree. People do too often focus on a feeling and an experience, when maybe the experience is more often the lifestyle in which we choose to live as a reflection of our faith in God. That was a very appropriate verse you brought up with regards to loving one another. And certainly interesting you see that statement come after an action of service earlier in the chapter, which perhaps seems a further suggestion of our purpose as Christians in this world. Service, which is a good to those around us and an honor to our God who desires us to exemplify love.

      Peace in Christ.
